    A Witchy Secret Update & Upcoming Event

    I just want to take a moment and update you on my book and an upcoming event you’ll want to mark on your calendar. Update on A Witchy Secret Release I had an accident recently and sprained the wrist of one hand and broke two fingers on the other. Typing is really not happening at the moment. I’m dictating a lot, but I’m not good enough at it yet to make a difference in my writing, So, unfortunately, I had to postpone the release of A Witchy Secret until June 15th. You can still preorder it though and it will be sent to you just as soon as it’s published. …

    April Book News (2021)

    A Writer’s Plan: NaNoWriMo Nov. 2019

    Every November thousands of writers decide to forgo their normal lives in order to write a novel in a month. Crazy, right? Probably. But, also inspirational and challenging.

But, I’ll be writing two novellas and beginning the first book in a new series. The first novella…

I try to leave my readers with hope and good feelings, even though they may…
